Technical Assistance

AARCH annually provides a wide variety of technical assistance to homeowners, business owners, municipalities and other not-for-profits on historic preservation matters. Among the kinds of assistance we provide are: helping with building conservation problems, identifying sources of funding for preservation projects, doing historical research, mediating disputes between parties over preservation issues, and providing information on historic sites surveys and National Register listings.  We typically service more than 50 technical assistance requests each year.

Just a few examples include:

  • providing useful information to encourage the preservation of the Hemmer Cottage in Old Forge, the fire-damaged Harmon-Rockwell cottage in Lake Luzerne, Sacandaga Station in Northville, camps at Zack Pond, and St. Gabriels Church in Paul Smiths
  • assisting with National Register nominations for the Peru Community Church and the Brighton Town Hall
  • helping with obtaining funding for preservation projects for the Whiteface Memorial Highway and the Upper Bridge in Keeseville
